Silk Painting

Allow the dyes to flow and absorb the vibrant colours

In this workshop, our tutors' encourage children and adults to unleash their creativity by applying paint to silk products with freehand or stencil techniques. This session is tailored for individual needs; we accommodate all abilities with printed designs and plain silk items, allowing you the freedom to create your very own pattern. We offer an extensive range of products, ranging from handkerchiefs to sun-catchers, and scarfs to ties. Instructions are given on sealing items made during the workshop, allowing your design to be water-proof, washable and colourfast.

Each session covers the basic principles of painting, including:

  • Stretching silk onto frames
  • Outlining with water-resistant barriers
  • Applying silk paints
  • Fixing design

Tuition is free. Price for materials start from just £4.00.

Cost: There will be an additional charge for material used during the day.

Please note: Children under 12 years must be supervised by a responsible adult.
